Apple to get rid of the USB port
If you’re still mourning the loss of the headphone jack, CD drive (or even the floppy disc), worse could be to come.
Another inlet traditionally built into our electronics could be on the way out as well.
Apple is rumoured to be ditching the USB port when it releases its latest models of the Macbook on October 27.
Next generations of the Macbook Pro are likely to lose the USB ports, people think, as well as Megsafe ports (where the charger slots in).
If so, they’d be replaced with different connecters USB-C and Thunderbolt 3. USB-C connectors can be plugged in either way around, unlike current USB chargers, and are thinner.
The rumour has been around for a couple of months now after a source from a Chinese supplier made the claim, but speculation has really started to grow after news of the launch on Thursday.
Apple announced it in a teaser fashion, when this invitation was sent out:
Anyway, we’ll find out for sure on Thursday.
Would you miss the USB port?
